Default big greandes

For the sake of it. Assume I had a grenade that did 4d instead of 2d.

would this sound about right?

2d damage for adjacent megahex
1d damage for 2 megahexes away
everyone within 8 MH has to roll to stay standing

I am not a grenade expert so it seems right, but the last part about staying standing seems big. But what about an 8d grenade? Would that go a whopping 16 megahexes for staying standing rolls?

Not quite. Compare to petards, which do 6d out to 3 MH and require standing rolls out to 20 MH.

I love how all the black powder weapons work in TFT; it is hard to argue that they are 'better' than non gunpowder weapons, overall, because they have a lot of weird properties and disadvantages. But they work very differently, in a tactical sense, from anything else, and when they work as intended in the appropriate situation they are devastating. So, kind of like badly engineered versions of real gunpowder weapons.
